Klinsmann has previously been linked with a move to Anfield during the tenure of previous owner’s Tom Hicks and George Gillett and could be open to a move to manage in the Premier League.

The former German international striker has impressed since taking over as US national team coach in 2011 but may have an eye on a club managerial career and a move to Anfield could prove tempting.

Publicly Liverpool’s owners are backing Brendan Rodgers and are unlikely to fire the Northern Irishman mid-season regardless of whether the Merseyside outfit continue to struggle but should the club fail to secure a Champions League berth then they are ready to conduct a managerial switch if a viable option is forthcoming.

Though Rodgers guided Liverpool to a runners-up finish last season and secured a subsequent return to the Champions League he has seen his side struggle this term and the majority of the players he chose to invest large sums in over the summer have failed to prove themselves.

Klinsmann is said to favour a return to the English top tier having enjoyed his two spells with Tottenham as a player and the club’s owners are well aware that the 50 year old is the type of high-profile appointment that will greatly aid the pursuit of top level signings.
